The $15 K-mart Skater Dress – Three Ways!

Hello 2016!

(officially now, since this is my first fashion post of the new year!)

And with the the new year comes new clothes of course, but I must admit that I actually purchased today’s dress as December came to an end. This is a stroke of good luck because I have decided that January will be a ‘buy nothing new kinda month’

With kids going back to school, one starting high school which means brand new everything and feeling a little spent from the festive season, I’m putting the brakes on buying new clothes and rediscovering some gems in my newly re-fitted wardrobes. Yep my clever cabinet maker hubby has re-jigged the wardrobes and given me a ton of space so I’ve ditched some rather questionable fashion choices…. his not mine and I’m really to roll!

Needless to say I was very excited when this little K-marni skater dress popped into my Facebook feed.

I love an easy to wear dress in the summer and K-mart does it again with this fab $15 black and white striped dress (love stripes). I have seen a number of lovely IG ladies rocking this dress already. So with that in mind I thought I would share my style with you all!

Here we go….

Simple Simon first up!

Most of us have some kind of lace-up shoe kicking around our wardrobes, add your favourite summer hat and sunnies and be on your way….. to the park or the beach!

If you want to dress up your casual look just a touch try adding a scarf and denim vest (or jacket). Stripes and denim are a match made in heaven! I’ve also added lace-up flats which are every wear at the moment.

And finally just because a dress only costs you $15 bucks doesn’t mean you can’t dress it up and take it out for the night! Casual dinner with friends, movie date, dancing!

Add a belt like this one I had lying around and a fun necklace. Heels and a leather jacket if the weathers being a little cray-cray and don’t forget a colourful clutch (who doesn’t love a print clash!)

(Of course I think hugging the palm tree is great idea Miss 14!)

And there you have it…. I think most of these outfits would come in under $50 in total, everything is from my wardrobe which means I have a lot of stuff that I really should start to wear haha!

Happy days lovely people,

until next time,
